  • 15 Almonds
  • 15 Cashews If you have broken cashews, take about 30 to 35
  • 15 Deshelled Pistachios
  • 2 tbsps Raw Rice
  • 2 Cardamom
  • 2 Cloves
  • 5 cups Water 2 cups + 5 tbsps + for soaking the nuts and rice
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Shredded Coconut


Prep Work:

  • Soak the nuts and rice in water for about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes, remove/peel the almond skin.


  • Drain the water from the nuts and grind the nuts, rice, coconut along with cardamom and cloves into a smooth paste by adding 5 tbsps of water.
  • Now transfer this paste to the heavy bottom vessel. Add 1 cup of water to the mixer jar, rinse it and add it to the vessel.
  • Mix the water and the paste together and now simmer this over medium heat until it thickens or when bubbles start to form. (It takes 4 to 5 minutes approx.)
  • Make sure you are stirring the mixture using a spoon or hand whisker for every 30 seconds.
  • When it thickens, add one more cup of water and the sugar.
  • Mix until the sugar dissolves and simmer it again over medium heat and bring it to one boil. (It take three to five minutes approx.)
  • Again, ensure you are stirring the kheer to avoid the lumps.
  • After the first boil, turn off the heat.
  • Garnish with nuts and serve it warm.



  • I kept the kheer vegan, and I did not add any raisins and nuts tempered in ghee. But you can add that.
  • Adjust the sugar according to your sweet preference. You can use mixed nuts or go with one variety or even include more like walnuts and pecans.
  • There is no set measure; you can adjust according to your taste. Also, add more or less water depending upon your consistency preference.
  • Instead of water, you can include milk or non-diary milk like almond or cashew milk.
